I thought it would be a bigger deal than it was, don't really miss the port. Switched to bluetooth and life goes on. It ain't comin back.

Except it did, and has, for a lot of phones.

2 is a lot? Either way, I don't think it's going to be a long term thing anymore. I don't really care how I get my audio, its just a port. I was more annoyed before we had decent wireless options but those exist now so /shrug.

Much more than 2, and wired is never going to go away completely, it's a sticking point for a LOT of people-just like how wired mouses are still a thing, and for good reason.

They should ask "Do you want to have a dongle that you can lose so you can do more than one thing with your phone or do you want your phone to have more than one port?"
Acceptable answers include.
A. Yes
B. False
C. All of the Above.
and D. 42

Or "Do you want to quickly trash your USB port with your dongle?"

But ask the question this way instead: "Do you prefer to have a headphone jack or not?"

And the "yes" percentage will be way higher than 1%.

Well yeah, which is why surveys designed to gauge the importance of features to consumers aren't supposed to ask questions like that. "Do you prefer a headphone jack or not?" is a bad question because you're asking a feature-hungry consumer to choose whether they want one more feature or not.

It's like if someone asked me if I wanted free sushi or not. I don't feel like eating sushi right now. It might just sit in the fridge and go bad. But if you force me to make a choice, I'm going to choose to take the sushi. It doesn't mean I wouldn't prefer something else if given the choice, and it sure doesn't make it my favorite food.

You could ask if they wanted an RJ-11 jack on there and get much higher than 1%.

Just because it's not a top feature doesn't mean it's not a make or break feature.

'Headphone Jack' sounds like an indie game.

That was the villain from Borderlands 2.

Trying to draw a conclusion that removing headphone jacks are no big deal based on a survey that wasn't intended to know if people prefer to have one or not.

How many other things are higher in priority? A crapload.

But ask the question this way instead: "Do you prefer to have a headphone jack or not?"

And the "yes" percentage will be way higher than 1%.

This is pure misleading horseshit, I'm surprised it was even posted here.

Blue, your standards are slipping :P.
Occasionally he has been known to include a link I've submitted. So clearly his standards are questionable. Wink

When it comes to articles like this, I don't even bother clicking on the link.


EDIT
Only now did I even bother to hover over the link (long press on android) and noticed it was a wccftech url. nuff said Grin
